The Power of Work

Work is love made visible.
Kahlil Gibran

The cure for boredom is not diversion, it is to find some work to do, something to care about.
John Gardner

Work joyfully and peacefully, knowing that right thoughts and right efforts will inevitably bring about right results.
James Allen

The road to success is paved with sweat and calluses.
Tiger Woods

As kids, sports energized us; it was a great outlet, and our success or failure was pretty much up to us. I always tell kids they can do anything they want as long as they’re willing to work for it.
Yogi Berra

Time with Children

People used to ask me: “How could somebody as busy as you go to all those swim meets and recitals?” I just put them down on my calendar as if I were seeing a supplier or a dealer that day.
Lee Iacocca

Many an excellent man is tempted to forget that the best offering he can make to his children is himself.
Henry Neumann

The time and the quality of the time that their parents devote to them indicate to children the degree to which they are valued by their parents. When children know they are valued, when they truly feel valued in the deepest part of themselves, then they feel valuable. This knowledge is worth more than gold.
M. Scott Peck

Participate with your child in sports. Go to his games and help him develop his skills. Showing him that you think what he’s doing is important will build his confidence.
Lou Patton

Decide to make the evening meal an occasion – that is, begin with the understanding that when everyone is seated no disturbances will be allowed to intrude. If the ringing of an unanswered phone bothers you, turn the ringer off. If you are accustomed to watching the news, tape it and watch it later in the evening.
